'Live And Well In Japan!


Great music, very good recording and well worth the four downloads.

They Say All Music Guide

Benny Carter headed a talent-filled tentet for this frequently exciting concert. With trumpeters Cat Anderson and Joe Newman, trombonist Britt Woodman, Cecil Payne on baritone and Budd Johnson doubling on tenor and soprano, it is not at all surprising that the results would be memorable, but this date actually exceeds one’s expectations. In addition to fine jam versions of “Squatty Roo,” “Them There Eyes” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing,” there is a remarkable Louis Armstrong medley on which Carter (on trumpet) plays “When It’s Sleepy Time Down South,” Cat Anderson follows with a high note solo on “Confessin’” and then Joe Newman (who rarely recorded vocals) does a near-perfect imitation of Louis Armstrong singing on “When You’re Smiling.” – Scott Yanow
